This is another of my claymation films from the 1960s. You'll be impressed, no doubt, by the expensive props and sets. And yes, the monster's eyes are ball bearings. That makes him a genuine steely-eyed monster. The hero should have been steely-eyed, too, but his head was too small.

And now, click and behold . . .

How long did it take to make that? How'd you make it? I like the ball bearing eyes and the monster's claw hands.

Thank you!

How long did it take? Probably several hours, but since I did it 50 years ago, I'm just guessing.

How did I make it? With my father's Minolta 8mm camera, shooting one frame at a time as I posed the little clay figures -- just like Mr. Harryhausen does. Very Happy

I made much more detailed clay monsters when I was a kid, but I never put details on the ones I animated because handling them just mushed up the surface, and moving the limbs caused them come apart, so they had to be repaired often.

Seen the other animation movies yet? I'm sorry I couldn't separate the animation from the junk that was on the reel with them, but the whole thing isn't very long.

Not yet, I tend to pop in, read a few things, and then slip back into the void. I'll be sure to watch them all at some point, I love stop motion monsters.

Well, folks, right there's the whole problem with All Sci-Fi.

Doctor Kaiju said he'd be sure to watch the other animation videos "at some point" — but that was seven years ago, and he hasn't been back since, after 14 total posts. Sad

The tragic fact is that message boards require members who can express themselves in written form — and by that, I do NOT mean those half-literate "text" that have robbed people of their literacy! Rolling Eyes

All Sci-Fi has 149 registers users— but only 50 of them have ever made more than two dozen posts. Only 25 have made more than a 100.

Just for the record, I've made almost half of the TOTAL number of the posts — 34,982.

Don't get me wrong. I've enjoyed ever minute of it. But I'd enjoy it even more if we had more post by the rest of our members.

Hey, it's not a chore for me, guys. It's a joy! Cool

But if some of you other guys see it as a chore, I fell sorry for you. As science fiction fans, using your imagination and creative skills is supposed to be fun. If it isn't, you should try adjusting your attitude . . . and do what I do
